Sixty Students Robbed on NED Bus in Nazimabad
Karachi : October 05 : Three armed men carrying pistols broke into a point bus of NED University of Engineering and Technology near Nadirya area of Nazimabad and robbed the students of their cell-phones and cash on Friday, police said.
The incident took place at around 8:30 am when a point bus of the NED varsity went to the SITE area to pick engineering students, both male and female, and when the bus was passing through the Nadirya area of Nazimabad, three armed men entered the bus and started looting.
The NED bus had stopped briefly to pick some students in Nazimabad when three armed men, wearing Shalwar Qameez and appearing to be Pashtuns, boarded the bus and started collecting cell-phones and cash from the students,” SSP Central Amir Farooqi told The News.
He said that there were at least 60 students, both male and female, in the bus when the incident took place and after completing their operation the armed men left the bus near Nazimabad Underpass.
Following the incident, the affected students gathered at the Nazimabad petrol pump and held a protest demonstration against the police and law enforcing agencies, saying that they were deprived of their valuables in the heart of the city in broad daylight.
It is shameful that the armed men entered the NED bus early in the morning in the heart of the city, looted the students and fled without any fear. Where are the police and Rangers, claiming to be carrying out targeted operations in the city,” Amir, a student of Civil Engineering Department, said.


The affected varsity students chanted slogans against the authorities, and refused to end their protest unless a case was registered against the culprits who deprived them of their valuables and terrorised them.


It is worth mentioning here that a point bus of University of Karachi was looted near Qasba Morr on September 03, when four armed men entered into the bus and deprived the students of their cash and cell-phones.


Registrar NED University Javed Aziz told The News that the robbers took away some 24 cell-phones and some cash from the students when the bus reached near Bara Maidan in Nazimabad.


The bus was coming to the varsity from Baldia, he said, adding that an FIR had been registered by the Nazimabad police station on the complaint of driver Dilawar.


“We will also write a letter to the police high-ups, asking them to provide protection to the students on their way to the varsity and back home,” he added.


Sabzwari slams robbery


Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s leader of the opposition in Sindh Assembly Faisal Sabzwari condemned the armed robbery on a NED University bus in Nazimabad area.


In a statement, he deplored the growing incidents of armed robbery on student buses, saying that the criminals had robbed the students of Karachi University last month near Banaras Bridge and now this incident has happened with the students of NED University.


Faisal Sabzwari said that on the one hand the political workers and innocent people were being targeted and subjected to brutal torture in police custody besides facing ban on social media and other means of communications, while on the other hand the criminals have been given free hand to rob businessmen, industrialists, shop owners, doctors, students and common citizens.


“These criminals are extorting money from people. They are killing and blowing up people who refuse to pay extortion money. Two days ago they threw a grenade at the clinic of a doctor in Gulistan-e-Jauher. Today they attacked the house of a bank manager with grenades in Frontier Colony because he had refused to pay extortion money. Criminals are robbing buses and carrying out kidnappings for ransom as usual,” he added.


Sabzwari alleged that the Sindh government had initiated political victimisation of MQM instead of taking action against criminals, adding, “The government should stop political repression of MQM and take action against the criminals who were carrying out armed robberies, kidnappings and subversive activities”.The news.
